It's best to sanitise your old toothbrush in hot water for approximately 5 minutes prior to reusing.
1. Spruce Up Those Converse
Toothbrush bristles removes mud and buffs away scuff marks. I like to make an eco cleaning paste out of bicarbonate of soda and water. *Please wear gloves if you have sensitive skin and check whether the material of the shoes are suitable for bicarbonate of soda.
2. Coach Commando Task
The dry bristles are ideal for getting rid of dirt, dust and grime from remote controls, gaming controls and keyboard keys. *Please ensure all electronic devices are turned off at the mains before cleaning.
3. Plants, Glorious Plants
Bamboo toothbrush handles make wonderful labels for plants. Remove the bristles with pliers and place in the recycling bin.
4. Sparkling Kitchen & Bathroom
Bristles are ideal for cleaning tile grouting, removing soap residue in sinks, plug holes and around taps.
5. Dust Fairy
Use the dry bristles to clear away dust and fluff from hairdryer vents, fans and extractor fans. *Switch all appliances off at the mains prior to cleaning.
